3e International School enrols approximately 225 students in Nursery (2 years) through Grade 6. Our students come from more than 20 nations and nearly all are second language learners of English, Chinese, or both. We take pride in fostering a love of learning, an ability to think critically and creatively about problems, and an ability to work collaboratively with all types of people.
At 3e, children spend 50% of each day in an English classroom with two native English speakers and 50% in a Chinese classroom with two native Chinese speakers. Teachers work collaboratively with their co-teacher to plan and implement engaging hands-on, cross-curricular, and developmentally appropriate activities. Education is focused on the whole-child including: cognitive, language, emotional, physical, creative, and inter/intrapersonal skills. Assessments at 3e are rarely standardized, but rather take the form of a developmental portfolio to track a child's individual progress as they move through grade levels.
3e’s Lido Campus (Nursery-Kindergarten) is located on an expansive park-like campus in north-east Beijing with abundant outdoor space; a rare find in downtown Beijing! We have a large vegetable garden and ample spaces for outdoor learning which teachers are encouraged to take advantage of with their classes. Indoors, classrooms are set up to foster independence and self-help skills as well as to promote free exploration of hands-on activities. We have three large indoor spaces which are used for gym and gross motor activities. 3e’s Elementary Campus shares facilities with the Lycee Francais de Pekin giving students access to sports fields, the gym, theater, and opportunities for cross-cultural collaboration with the French students.
